So the plan is to get to the coast! Not a lot of towns on our way but we had some down hill and mountains on either side of a valley to begin the day. We had lunch in a town called Gracac. The fact that it was the largest town for some 40 km we thought for sure it was a great destination for our lunch. It was quite run down and garbage was strewn about throughout their central park. Some friendly 14 year old boys made conversation with us. They were obviously bored. When Chrissy asks them what they like to do for fun, the kid replies in english with this strong croatian accent, "sometimes smoking" I guess you had to be there Chrissy and I thought it was kinda funny that all he could come up with was smoking. Pretty sad, I guess.
After that town we went up a mountain pass. We must have climbed about 150 m and then dropped down much much further. We were riding our bikes down the edge of a mountain for 12 straight kilometers. You'll have to check out the pictures it was awesome. We then found ourselves deep in a desert that was approaching the coast. The views were spectacular and it helped us work through our tired legs.
We reached the coast and traversed a wide range of landscapes along the way.
